The landrush phase for new gTLDs occurs after sunrise and before general availability. Landrush will follow a “Dutch auction” format. All names will start at a maximum established price on the Landrush start date. Over the duration of Landrush, the price will be lowered in decrements daily as registrants decide at what price point they wish to register. The price reduction will occur at 12:00 EST daily. Landrush will end at 11:59 PM on May 21, 2016:

- May 19-20 $4,000
- May 20-21 $400
Please note that registration of .PROMO domains during Landrush is a commitment by both the registrar and registrant to pay a premium for that domain. If a .PROMO name is registered and then subsequently canceled within the 5-day grace period during landrush, that domain will be removed from the registry and will be unavailable until General Availability (GA). After the start of GA, that domain will be made available again as a premium domain at the price established during Landrush. If you have any questions, please contact tech support before registering.
Premium Names will also be made available for registration during the Landrush Period. These names can be registered only at the pre-determined premium price and via the standard premium names registration process.
General Availability: 2016-05-23 12:00 PM EST
GA Pricing: 18.95 CAD per domain year
